It’s a bit early for gags, but this is a classic case of thinking outside the box.

Arguably, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class reached its peak back in the 1980s, when it wasn’t even called the E-Class. Comprising of models such as the all-rounder 300E, the handbuilt-by-Porsche 500E and the aftermarket-tuned AMG Hammer among others, the German carmaker’s W124-generation sedan was iconic. Unfortunately, right after this model was discontinued in 1995 after an 11-year run, Mercedes-Benz entered an era of confused designs and cost-cutting measures that didn’t subside until more than a decade later. Now, four generations later, there is an all-new Mercedes-Benz E-Class, but does it have what it takes to become an icon again?

It replaces the older 4-cylinder Ecoboost-derived turbo motor that was bummed off of Ford and did duty in the base XE, the Land Rover Discovery Sport and the Range Rover Evoque. Expect the latter two to get the new engine soon.
While emission regs keep digging a grave for the glorious naturally-aspirated V12 engine, Ferrari has decided to give its flagship V12 engine one last shot. For this, they have completely overhauled their flagship supercar the F12 Berlinetta to produce the new 812 Superfast.
It had been 6 and a bit years since I bought my Civic brand new from the showroom, when I was single. A lot of things happen in 6 years, and I found myself browsing online classifieds for another car. My weekly trip between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, a growing family, and an aging car with 235,000 km on it are the main reasons for changing. SUVs were out because I’d rather not burn petrol on extra drag and weight and prefer a sedan’s stability. My other criteria included a car no more than 2 years old, a budget of Dhs 85,000 and a V6,
